Biographical / Historical

A meeting for worship at Galloway was established by 1726 under Great Egg Harbor Monthly Meeting; a meeting under the care of Haddonfield Monthly Meeting was probably in existence before that date. A preparative meeting was established in 1801 by Haddonfield Quarterly Meeting out of a division of Great Egg Harbor Preparative Meeting.

There is no information about a Hicksite Meeting at Galloway.

The Orthodox preparative meeting was transferred to Haddonfield Monthly Meeting in 1843. The preparative meeting and meeting for worship were discontinued in 1865 and their members transferred to Haddonfield Monthly Meeting. An indulged meeting at Galloway was in existence from 1865 to 1868.

This meeting is often unofficially referred to as "Leeds Point."
